The Smashing Pumpkins latest incarnation played Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday, May 10.
Alicia Keys proved that she is, indeed, a "Girl on Fire" Friday night at Phillips Arena. The Atlanta crowd, which had warmed up to the sultry synths of opener Miguel, was on its feet throughout the entire performance. Keys commanded the stage, whether it was sitting comfortably behind her piano or standing behind a microphone. A backdrop of the New York City skyline accented her performance as she gave the audience a well-received mix of material from her previous albums, as well as her latest release, 2012's Girl On Fire.
The Deftones made a stop on their world tour Sunday evening at the capacity-filled Tabernacle. The band is currently supporting their most recent, critically acclaimed album, Koi No Yokan with longtime members Chino Moreno on lead vocals, Stephen Carpenter on lead guitar, Abe Cunningham on drums, Frank Delgado on keyboards and turntables, and Quicksand bassist Sergio Vega (filling in for Chi Cheng), in tow. The Deftones blasted through an extensive, crowd-pleasing set spanning 25 years and seven albums, playing everything from "Be Quiet and Drive" to "Digital Bath," "Swerve City," "Change (In the House of Flies)," and finishing with a blistering encore of "Engine No. 9" and "7 Words."
Imagine Dragons played to a sold-out crowd at the Tabernacle on Feb. 14. The band, based out of Las Vegas, Nev., has sold out nearly every date of their "Night Visions" tour and was called 2012's Brightest New Stars by Billboard Magazine.
The band's name is an anagram for something that's never been revealed, any ideas?
Afterward, Eric Grantham of local bands Vegan Coke, deadCAT, Babar, and Sexwax had this to say about the show ...
"It truly was a Wonder of Weird, and I think it weirded me out a little more than the last time I saw them. The Residents are a live panic attack - from start to finish the show made me uncomfortable, on edge, hungry, sad, happy, and it completely blew my brains out. Honestly, I think the Residents are the only band whose almost endless amount of releases do not over shadow their roller coaster ride through a deranged mans mind of a show."
... Couldn't have said it better myself.

When Leonard Cohen's 2009 tour brought him to The Fox Theatre, much of the crowd assumed this would be the last tour for the 75 year old poet and songwriter. But a new album, Old Ideas, inspired him to go back on the road with his band including his long time collaborator Sharon Robinson, the Webb Sisters and guitarist Javier Mas. Despite his 78 years Cohen played over 3 hours, covering 29 songs - hits including "Hallelujah" and "Famous Blue Raincoat" to tracks from his latest album.
November 25, 2012 - On every second and fourth Sunday for almost a year, a group of young Atlantans have gathered in the basement of Wonderroot off of Memorial Dr. to participate in a laid back cypher, or freestyle battle, dubbed Soul Food Cypher. Participants come from all over the city and various walks of life, and though they're mostly young males, no two rappers sound or rap about the same thing. The cypher consists of freestyle "open cyphers" where the participants can rap about whatever comes to their head but also includes weekly prompted writing assignments.

Well besides the are "you old or not" rant of previous posts, LOL, the show…
Why does underground rap have to be a "black people" art form? And I'm willing…
